The new record-breaking mobile jackpot was won by a player at the Tipico online casino, which is based in Malta. No details about the winner have been released, but we do know that he or she landed the €8 million prize with a stake of just €6.25. That’s quite a return on investment, one that leaves even many lottery games in the shade, and slots fans are now wondering how long it will be before someone else wins an even bigger sum.
Mega Moolah is a slots title which is currently available in several different versions. The original version features a Wild African theme, but players can also have a go at playing Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Summertime and Mega Moolah Isis. All of the Mega Moolah variations share the same progressive jackpot, so all players have a chance of winning the top prize no matter which version they play or where they happen to be located.
The Microgaming progressive jackpot network is the biggest in the world, having paid out more than €716 million thus far. That being the case, it is entirely feasible that the network payout total could one day reach the €1 billion mark.
Marlon van der Goes, chief commercial officer at Tipico, said: "We are delighted that one of our players won this jackpot with a stake of €6.25, which is the biggest win in our online casino history, and the biggest mobile jackpot payout ever!"
Microgaming are equally pleased about the win. "It’s incredible to think in just over a month the mega jackpot climbed from €4.3 million (as at 21 March) to €8 million (as at 25 April),’ said games publisher David Reynolds, "To see our own record for the largest ever mobile jackpot payout break is fantastic - we’d like to congratulate the Tipico player on their life-changing win."
Mega Moolah can be played at 32Red Casino and other venues on the Microgaming platform.
